        Sure.  Depending on your version of prompt code, look for all
those places where make_prompt, or show_prompt or whatever it is runs.
Surround their output with something like 'proc_color' or
'interp_colorcodes' or again, whatever it is that runs in your comm.c's
write_to_output() function.

        Make sure you don't miss memory though :)
